Ruth is absolutely great host. It was a joy to stay with her. Room was exactly as described and perfectly presented. Breakfast was provided and Lovely. Ruth was great with advise on where to eat and things to do. She also had lots of brochures in the room and adapter if required. The house is only few mins walk to the harbour area with nice cafes and Shops. Definitely hope to be back in Westport again and to stay with Ruth. Hopefully I'll take advantage of her free bikes and do the greenway!
Ruth is an excellent host. She is helpful without being invasive, kind and very knowledgeable about her charming town. I look forward to staying with her again.
Ruth was extremely welcoming, courteous and an excellent host who even met me off the train. The single room is extremely comfortable with ample storage room and a cosy bed. The house is easily accessible as it is only a ten minute walk from the town centre. The house is also located beside the greenway which you can use to walk/cycle into town or to go to the Westport Quay. In summary, another enjoyable airbnb experience.
This is my first time to use AirBnB. My stay with Ruth was like home from home. Place was spotless and room was perfect and as per photograph. Loved being able to access cooking facilities. As a solo traveller I particularly appreciated having a single room and not having to pay a supplement. Location was ideal for me, close to a walk/cycle path which was 6 minute walk from Quay's and perhaps 10 minutes to town centre on the flat. Breakfast you make yourself and are encouraged to help yourself to from a wide range of cereals,which is supplied along with bread, eggs and fruit. There was even a small bottle of water and a bar of chocolate supplied in the bedroom. I may be back in Westport later on in the summer and if so will be looking to stay with Ruth if she has a room available.
